It is an over the air request for the box to phone home and is certainly once per month, don't know if it is more frequent.

Seems stupid, doesn't it?

I would understand if Sky was located in former Soviet Union and did this, but it seems just silly to check people out this way if they are cheating or not.

I don't think that it's stupid Likvid, If I were a business selling a discounted second card on the basis that it was used in a single household, I would want to make sure that it wan't depriving me of an otherwise full subscription elsewhere.

Just good business sense.
